Have you been plugging ‘animal tours near me’ into Google search? If so, stop, we have a tour perfect for you.
For unique animal encounters Brisbane north of the city book a Llama Experience with Dayboro Cottages & Llama Walks to enjoy a carefree half hour getting up close to cute and cheeky llamas a short drive north of Dayboro Township.
The Llama Experience is one of the best things to do in Dayboro. This llama feeding tour lasts for approximately 30 minutes and is held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons at a pre-arranged time between 2pm and 4pm.
This feeding tour involves a llama information session held in the herd’s llama paddock, up behind the property’s cottage accommodation. You’ll be able to get a glimpse of the valley from the paddock during the 30 minute feeding tour.
The highlight of this tour is of course the feeding session – you will be handed a bowl containing pellets with which to feed the resident llamas. You can also hand feed them leaves or hay if you wish. Feel free to give your llama a pat while they munch away.
Some of the llamas enjoy pellets, while some prefer leaves or hay. Keep your eye out for 1 llama in particular who will steal the show – Emery's hunger knows no bounds when it comes to pellets, this hilarious chap will gallivant from bowl to bowl gobbling as much food as he can. You’re sure to get a laugh from his cheeky antics.
Animal encounters Brisbane north of the city don’t get more amusing than a llama feeding.

Beautiful, sweet-natured llamas are curious, interesting and calming characters bred for their calm temperament.
Originating from the Americas, they are amongst the earliest of all domesticated animals. A member of the camelid family, llamas are an extremely versatile herd animal comfortably at ease with human interaction.
Every llama is unique, these animals come in a wide variety of colours and sizes, and each has their very own distinct personality.
A friendly and helpful companion, llamas are commonly used as pack animals in mountainous areas and by people who simply enjoy hiking or backpacking in the company of a quiet and willing side-kick. Llamas are capable of carrying a third of their body weight and their two-toed feet enable them to be agile and sure-footed on all sorts of terrain. As a bonus, the soft pad on the bottom of their feet ensures they leave little impact on the environment.
When: The 30 minute Llama Experience can be booked for Saturdays and Sundays at a predetermined time sometime between 2pm to 4pm (weather permitting).
Please Wear/Bring: Sneakers/runners as you will be toured through the llama paddock. It is recommended you also wear a hat and sunscreen. Don’t forget your camera or smart phone to snap all the llama antics!
